First of 3 shoots (out of 9 seeds) seen on Tuesday 28th of December 2010
This is a much lower % of success and I suspect the seed quality was not as good as the first batch. When the seeds are collected from the seed pods it is best to try and sow them within six months of collection. Old seeds will sometimes germinate but with less frequency.
The propagator is set at a temperature of 28 degrees Celsius (82.4 degrees Fahrenheit) at the soil surface level.
Approximately 6.5 cm (2.5 inches) of growth during this week
